NEW DELHI : Popular web infrastructure provider Cloudflare has unveiled a way to eliminate CAPTCHAs from the Internet. The company, which is known for providing websites protection from distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, wants to use USB security keys to do the same, using a method it calls the Cryptographic Attestation of Personhood. Cloudflare provides content delivery network (CDN) services for a large number of websites (some estimates say it owns over 80% market share) in the world, making it uniquely poised to bring such a system to the mainstream.
